Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

    Was it just me who thought C.Cs name was Chris (Christopher Afton) cos i'm pretty sure a lot of people call him that- Is there any proof about it cos i haven't heard proof about it before. Its a thing not many people talk about.Just pretend this comment ceased to exist theorists-

    I think that the crying child is controlling nightmare Fred bear in custom night( the golden one) his father made illusions of the animatronics but Fred Bear says he is very real in his jump scare. If you listen to his jump scare sound carefully you can hear a small high pitched voice talking along with Fred bear. Also the nightmare animatronics speak like they are real. Nightmare Freddy says he is remade like he is now real. If that is wrong how about this, Cassidy gave the crying child life in nightmare Fred bear to get revenge on his father William afton for creating something that killed him. Like so mat pat can see

    Another theory is that mangles friend attached to it is endo-01 from FNAF1. That is why in mangles custom night jump scare lines you can hear a faint male voice( endo-01) and a loud female voice that comes from mangel. Mangles voice is louder because her voice box is intact. Endo-01’s voice box is very damaged. So mangel is a female and endo-01 is a male. The real question is who’s endo skeleton is that. Maybe golden Freddy?

    I notice that you say in your five nights at Freddy‘s three you say William Afton was springtrap but it’s Michael Afton because after the fnaf 3 location burned down he says “farther it’s me micheal,” and Michel is mistaken as purple guy. Purple guy had three children baby is Cassidy, William is purple guy, micheal is springtrap. So William is the one in costume night

    There is a connection. From what I’ve heard, the puppet in the book seem to be controlled by some sort of walkytalky, just like in fnaf 4. in a way, both the crying child and the cancer child are both dying. The cancer child from cancer, and the crying child from a bite wound. Maybe there is someone in the fnaf 4 game named Evan. A friend you meet in the minigames you Play before the Night Starts. It seems like there isn’t one, but I feel like it would be worth looking in fnaf4 again? Because strangely enough both the golden Freddy puppet and the ‚evan‘ puppet Try to help in situation with NO good ending. This is my theory

    Hey, i watched your videos from the joker (2019) again and I stumbled on something. It may just be a thought and nothing else, but what if everything that happened in the dc universe. Batmans parents dying, bruce Wayne becoming batman and almost killing the joker, robin being turned into the joker at some point, are all just the thoughts and fantasies of the Joker. He finally get’s the spotlight and even kills batman and super man in the comics if i’m correct. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but just shot through my mind. Great vids btw! Keep it up!

    The picture of 'Evan' from the part where he I stalking about the book is scary because he has brown hair like.... CC's hair is brown too..... And has a brother that's really strange......? Can someone tell me to stop?! I think the book Evan is actually CC. But how can he be? CC is dead! CALM DOWN!!! Please can someone help me theorise? I am confused. Could Evan (the dad) be CC? I think he can, plus SKFFB said he'd bring him back, so maybe his body works, but when he's asleep he posses Golden Freddy but to make it look like he is still, he got his body to toss and turn? I think this is a good theory, for me. Can anyone agree? Thanks! BYE

    McRonlad7 ชั่วโมงที่ผ่านมา

    (I quickly want to mention that my theories are pretty much just guessing and not backed by any evidence) Can the EVAN mentioned in the Survival handbook even be the Father? Didnt Crying Child die due to the bite of 87 and therefore got passed on to Golden Fredie? A theorie im thinking about is that Crying child didnt actually die but he got mindswapped like Alec in the Shortstories in Fazbear Frights: Fetch. Though we dont know what or who is controlling the bodies of the possesed Kids. I dont know if they still have their actual knowledge or how they behave after the swaps. Perhaps their goal is then to gather more souls for the animatronics and that could be the reason he has the puppet there. To be able to capture Jake's soul. For this theory to work out there are 2 ways i can think of. Either Crying child changes his voice when he talks with margie and actually is still young, or he somehow traveled back in time like Oswald did in Fazbear Frights: Into the pit and therefore became an Adult.
